  4. 4. Introduction • Western education, as we have seen, proved to be a blessing in the long run. With the spread of Western education, a large number of Indians imbibed a modern, rational, liberal, progressive outlook. • The impact of modern ideas gave birth to a new awakening. A vast ancient country like India had been enslaved by a handful of foreigners.
  5. 5. Raja Ram Mohan Roy • Raja Ram Mohan Roy (22 May 1772 – 27 September 1833) was a founder (along with Dwarkanath Tagore and other Bengali Brahmins) of the Brahmo Sabha movement in 1828 which engendered the Brahmo Samaj, an influential Bengali socio-religious reform movement. • His influence was apparent in the fields of politics, public administration and education as well as religion. He is best known for his efforts to establish the abolishment hurry of the practice of sati, the Hindu funeral practice in which the widow was compelled to sacrifice herself on her husband’s funeral pyre in some parts of the then Bengal. It was him who first introduced the word "Hinduism" into the English language in 1816. For his diverse contributions to society, Raja Ram Mohan Roy is regarded as one of the most important figures in the Bengali renaissance. His efforts to protect Hinduism and Indian rights by participating in British government earned him the title "The Father of the Indian Renaissance"
  6. 6. Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar • Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar (26 September 1820 – 29 July 1891), born Ishwar Chandra Bandopadhyay, was Indian Bengali polymath and a key figure of the Bengal Renaissance. He was a philosopher, academic educator, writer, translator, printer, publisher, entrepreneur, reformer, and philanthropist. His efforts to simplify and modernize Bengali prose were significant. He also rationalized and simplified the Bengali alphabet and type, which had remained unchanged since Charles Wilkins and Panchanan Karmakar had cut the first (wooden) Bengali type in 1780. • He received the title "Vidyasagar" (in Sanskrit vidya means knowledge and sagar means ocean, i.e., Ocean of Knowledge) from Sanskrit College, Calcutta (from where he graduated), due to his excellent performance in Sanskrit studies and philosophy.
  7. 7. Dayanand Saraswati • Dayanand Saraswati born (12 February 1824 – 30 October 1883) was a Hindu religious leader who founded the Arya Samaj, a Hindu reform movement of the Vedic tradition. He was a profound scholar of the Vedic lore and Sanskrit language. He was the first to give the call for Swarajya as "India for Indians" – in 1876, later taken up by Lokmanya Tilak. Denouncing the idolatry and ritualistic worship prevalent in Hinduism at the time, he worked towards reviving Vedic ideologies. Subsequently the philosopher and President of India, S. Radhakrishnan, called him one of the "makers of Modern India," as did Sri Aurobindo. • Those who were influenced by and followed Dayananda included Madam Cama, Pandit Lekh Ram, Swami Shradhanand,Pandit Guru Dutt Vidyarthi,Shyam Krishan Verma (who established India House in England for Freedom fighters)Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, Lala Hardayal, Madan Lal Dhingra, Ram Prasad Bismil, Mahadev Govind Ranade Swami Shraddhanand, Mahatma Hansraj, Lala Lajpat Rai and others.
  8. 8. Swami Vivekananda • Swami Vivekananda (12 January 1863 – 4 July 1902), born Narendra Nath, was an Indian Hindu monk and chief disciple of the 19th-century saint Ramakrishna. He was a key figure in the introduction of the Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga to the Western world and is credited with raising interfaith awareness, bringing Hinduism to the status of a major world religion during the late 19th century. He was a major force in the revival of Hinduism in India, and contributed to the concept of nationalism in colonial India. Vivekananda founded the Ramakrishna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission. He is perhaps best known for his speech which began, "Sisters and brothers of America ...,“ in which he introduced Hinduism at the Parliament of the World's Religions in Chicago
  9. 9. Ramakrishna Paramahamsa • Ramakrishna (18 February 1836 – 16 August 1886), born Gadadhar Chatterji or Gadadhar Chattopadhyay was an Indian mystic and yogi during the 19th- century. His religious school of thought led to the formation of the Ramakrishna Mission by his chief disciple Swami Vivekananda. Tota Puri gave him the name Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. • Ramakrishna was born in a poor Brahmin Vaishnava family in rural Bengal. He became a priest of the Dakshineswar Kali Temple, dedicated to the goddess Kali, which had the influence of
  10. 10. Conclusion • The Renaissance was the most important time period in the development of humanity because of the significant adjustments in science, exploration, the Church, government, art, and writing. In the medieval period, the society had fallen into a deep slumber. Significant amounts of people decided to adhere to ideas that were thought up by blind thinkers.
